The return of the ’90s icons series begins on Paramount + Streaming Channel
Anyone who lived through the ’90s will have a lot of associations with angry noises and bored idiots: “Beavis and Butt-Head” was an absolute pop culture phenomenon in that decade.
The return of the series, which ran with great success on MTV from 1993 to 1996, was announced several times, starting August 4, it’s time: new episodes will begin on US streaming service Paramount+ (available in Austria from December). Show Metalheads in new adventures.
